In Atlanta, Georgia police have charged a former prosecutor in Fulton County with drug offenses as well as other charges. Rand Csehy who served as the assistant district attorney for Fullerton County, was caught red handed during a sting by law enforcement. Charges filed include possession with intent to distribute both ecstasy and methamphetamine, as well as possession of cocaine and two separate charges of firearm possession during the commission of a felony. The former prosecutor now works as a high profile defense attorney and his clients include many drug dealers and also cartel members and others who contribute to substance abuse and addiction in North America. After his arrest Csehy was released on a signature bond in the amount of $25,000.
This is not the first time that Rand Csehy has been in the public eye, but it is the first for substance abuse and drug possession. Csehy worked on the Brian Nichols case as a prosecutor, and he was the defense attorney for Greg Junnier. Junnier was an Atlanta police officer who shot a 92 year old woman, Kathryn Johnson, inside of her home without provocation. The fact that Csehy possessed 3 different drugs but was only distributing 2 shows that the attorney has a substance abuse problem and needs substance abuse treatment. Even if he does go to rehab it is doubtful that Csehy will be able to slide on the firearm charges or receive a suspended sentence for the distribution charges. As an attorney it would seem like the former prosecutor would know better than to start substance abuse in the first place.
